The daytime Statue Sail features some of the best views of lower Manhattan as well as the Statue of Liberty, Governors Island and Ellis Island. All together you'll be on the Clipper City Tall Ship for about 60 minutes after the ship departs from Battery Park.

Highlights

Statue of Liberty
The Clipper City Tall Ship cruise will give you great views of the breathtaking Statue of Liberty. You will get the best photos imaginable as you cruise by under the power of the ship's massive sails.

Governors Island
Floating just about 800 yards south of Manhattan, Governors Island is a beautiful National Landmark in NYC. The island is home to the exciting summer music festival named Governors Ball which has featured artists like Flume, "Weird Al" Yankovic and Chance The Rapper.

Ellis Island
Along the cruise, you will also see Ellis Island which was once the passageway for over 12 million immigrants who wished to enter the country. The island has expanded over the years and now occupies almost 28 acres of land.
